Miura, Miura On the Wall

I fell in love with this fun fold when Beth Eash shared a card she had made in my Facebook group, and I learned to make one from Sharon Lim.

Besides the fact that they look amazing, Miura folds are mathematically fascinating. They are named after the Japanese astrophysicist who created this pattern. It’s a tessellation of parallelograms that allows a large surface to be compacted down to a flat shape, which can be opened and closed in one efficient motion. They used this fold for the solar panel arrays on Japanese space satellites so they can be unfurled with a minimum amount of effort. So cool, right?!
